A pseudonym used by SJI Holliday

Susi Holliday grew up near Edinburgh and spent many years working in her family’s newsagent and pub before studying microbiology and statistics at university. She has worked as a statistician in the pharmaceutical industry for over 16 years, but it was on a 6-month round-the-world-trip that she took with her husband 10 years ago that she rediscovered her passion for writing.

A Fractured Winter (2018)

"A heartfelt family drama with a deeply sinister edge."
The Cliff House (2018)
Amanda Jennings
"Mesmerising and nostalgic with a dark undercurrent that will leave you reeling."
The Old Religion (2018)
(Tom Killgannon, book 1)
Martyn Waites
"Deeply unsettling and hauntingly realistic, The Old Religion takes all the things I love in a book and smashes them together - hard."
The Nowhere Child (2019)
Christian White
"Beautifully written, perfectly suspenseful and wonderfully dark. I could not put this book down."
Here To Stay (2019)
Mark Edwards
"A tense, twisted thriller with a fantastic main character and a nerve-shredding story line that will completely mess with your head. Brilliant."
What Lies Between Us (2020)
John Marrs
"I loved it although I’m not sure I’ve read anything as dark, ever…"
Body Language (2020)
(Cassie Raven, book 1)
A K Turner
"Had the pleasure of reading this little beauty by AK Turner and I loved it. It was awesome! Dark humour and gore galore - Cassie Raven is my new favourite character. The mortuary scenes were so vivid - it was like Silent Witness but much more believable."
What I Did (2021)
Kate Bradley
"In this realistic portrayal of a family in turmoil, this is not so much a psych thriller, but a drama of tangled, tragic lives. Utterly compelling."
The Art of Death (2021)
David Fennell
"A serial killer classic in the making, The Art of Death is neatly plotted, perfectly paced and brilliantly characterised with a clever concept that hooks you in and holds you tight, right up to the extremely satisfying final page."
Her Last Holiday (2021)
C L Taylor
"Another twisty-turny and unputdownable read from the Queen of psychological thrillers. Her Last Holiday is a chillingly plausible tale of why you should never, ever go on a wellness retreat."
The Killing Kind (2021)
Jane Casey
"Dripping with tension and intrigue, The Killing Kind is one of those 'just one more page' books that you cannot put down."
The Serial Killers Wife (2021)
Alice Hunter
"Twisty, turny, tense and so very, very clever."
The Rule (2021)
David Jackson
"A pacy, smart and darkly funny heartbreaker of a crime novel."
The Dark (2021)
Emma Haughton
"Tense, twisted and quite literally chilling - a locked room mystery in a unique setting where no one can be trusted."
